Bijo To Ekitainingen (1958)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
When a narcotics deal goes sour and a suspect disappears, leaving only his clothes, Tokyo police question his wife and stake out the nightclub where she works. His disappearance stumps the police - until a young scientist appears who claims that H-Bomb tests in the Pacific, evidenced by a "ghost ship" that has turned up in the harbor, have created radioactive creatures - "H-Men" - who ooze like slime and dissolve anyone they touch.

- You'll Be Gripped By Unholy Horror When You Realize What H Really Means!
- Dr. Maki: [voice-over] If man perishes from the face of the Earth, due to the effects of hydrogen bombing, it is possible that the next ruler of our planet may be The H-Man.
- Yumi Shirakawa's singing voice (for the two songs in the film) is provided by noted Japanese jazz starlet Martha Miyake.
In the original Japanese version, the detectives make a big deal out of the fact that Chikako owns a television. At the time this was made, 1958, a television set was still beyond the budget of the typical Japanese family.
Haruo Nakajima had two roles. One was "second dissolved sailor", another was "Liquid Human Being".
In the U.S. theatrical release,and subsequent TV release prints, "The End" appears on screen in Japanese as in the original Japanese language version. For the 2009 U.S. DVD release, the final seconds are jarringly replaced with a title card that reads "The End" in English.
